Alright boys and girls, here it is, as many of you have requested, a build thread for my Viper S10.

There hasn't been many updates these last few months, been busy with some other cars, drinkin beer and enjoying life

allright, this is what I started with almost 4 years ago:



shortly after that I painted it orange, added numbers on the doors and traded the 17" bmw rims for some 16" revolution wheels.


bought new drop springs at summit for the rear:


when I bought the truck it had a 305/350 powerplant, with edelbrock intake and carb, hedman headers and some rusted out flowmasters.

as winter 2010 came the tranny was shot for the third time, and I was sick of rust, rust, rust and then some more rust. The truck got left outside that winter, which resulted in this:




as you all probably can imagine, tearing down a car may end in some pretty questionable decisions, and the biggest (by a long shot) alteration of the original plan is the viper powertrain.
I originally intended to use the 305 for a little while longer, and then maybe swap it out for a 454. well, things got a bit out of hand

well, two years later, this is were Im at:





feel free to comment, ask questions, or leave whatever nonsense you feel like in this thread.. (as long as its car related)

almost forgot, for those of you who don't know me, im Halvor, 24ish years old, and lives in Haugesund, Norway (no, norway is not the capitol of sweden )

Both the engine and tranny are bolted in, just not joined to rear end yet..
I have to order a custom driveshaft, but that havent got around to order it.. I dont feel it needs it right now, there are other things i have to do before i do that, like having the wiring harness redone..
